Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encode their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you purchase a paid script and you want to set it up in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate properly because most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new web hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web app. If you buy a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all of the cloud hosting plans that we offer, so any time you need it in order to set up and execute some script app which requires it, you can enable it with a click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you can switch the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you'll need to enable the instrument for each new version which you set. If you are more experienced, you are able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you can manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you can't do with numerous other web hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application which requires the software tool in order to work effectively. With several clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support several releases of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do this each time you switch to a new version, and when you revert back to a release that you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
